Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies has told Forest Player that his side’s opening day win over Huddersfield Town was ‘a great three points’.A second-half strike from Henri Lansbury was enough to separate the two teams but Davies admitted it was a tough test for his side.
Speaking to Forest Player after the game he said: “I think it was always going to be a difficult opening game of the season. Huddersfield were very well organised and made life tough for us but it is a great three points and a well-deserved clean sheet.
“I thought there were some excellent performances across the back five and it was a wonderful goal by Henri Lansbury. Players like Matt Derbyshire, Ishmael Miller and Jamie Paterson came into the fold and gave their absolute all which is fantastic.
“Great credit goes to the players for a superb start to the season.”
Davies also reserved special praise for the Forest supporters who roared the team on at many important stages of the game to help The Reds to claim the win.
He said: “I thought the fans inside The City Ground were top class and we thank them for what they have done this afternoon.”
